Earmuffs of Recycled Material 

Step 1 — Earmuffs of Recycled Material 

• Cut sports-themed ball in half with the sharp knife. Cut small slits on top of each half big 
enough for the headband to slide through and fit snugly. 

• Secure headband by wrapping a rubber band on each side of the headband within each half 
of the ball to ensure that the headband does not slide out. 

• Add the stuffing to the inside of each half of the ball. 

Step 2 

• Wrap the fabric around the opening 
of each half of the ball. Secure it to 
the ball's inside edge with fabric 
glue and let it dry.

Step 3 

• Your warm, sporty earmuffs are 
ready to wear! 

• Optional: Headphone earmuffs 

• Sew a small pocket into the 
fabric before securing it on the 
half of the ball. 

• Place the headphone speakers 
into the pocket and sew around 
them to hold them in position. 

• Glue the fabric as in Step 4 with 
the headphone cords downward. 

These custom earmuffs are simple to make and comfortable to wear.
